1. A bottle of lifesaving dry shampoo for the mornings when greasiness has taken over your hair and a shower just isn't in the cards.

instagram.com, sephora.com

Promising review: "I have tried pretty much every type of dry shampoo out there, and this is the first one that has actually worked for me. It doesn't weigh my hair down, it makes it look fresh and clean, and it doesn't leave powdery residue in my hair. I got this complimentary in order to test, and I'm so glad I did because honestly I had given up on ever finding a dry shampoo that I like. The only half-downside is the smell, which is pretty much just like hairspray, but it's not bad, just not amazing. I would definitely recommend this." —Aubsstrawbs

Get it from Sephora or Nordstrom for $14+ (available in two sizes), or Jet for $26.01.

2. A replenishing shampoo and conditioner with avocado oil and shea butter to nourish and revive dry strands.

Promising review: "My daughter has thick mixed hair, and it's always dry and tangled. Nothing ever seems to work. I used it tonight for the first time, and I'm so shocked at how soft AND moisturized it feels. I could comb through her hair with my fingers. She's 10 and this is the first time her hair has felt this way. I'm in love!" —Arielsmom08Get the shampoo and conditioner from Target for $3.49, or the shampoo and conditioner from Walmart for $3.47.

3. A moisturizing detangling spray because nothing is worse than ripping your hair to shreds, trying to comb it out after a windy day.

It also provides moisture for dry hair and heat protection up to 400 degrees! Promising review: "I'm so glad I tried this product as a deluxe sample. I loved it so much, I purchased the full size. It may seem a bit pricey, but the full size bottle goes a long way, even with the amount of product I need. I have long, wavy hair that tangles easily, even after conditioning. This product is a tangle-taming miracle. As a plus, my hair feels softer and smoother, and the scent is pleasant but not overpowering. Works well for air-drying." —amylovesyahGet it from Amazon for $7.05+ (available in two sizes) or Sephora for $16+ (available in two sizes) or Birchbox for $29 (available in an 8 fl. oz. bottle).

4. A highly-rated hydrating mask to restore your hair from the dry, frigid winter. It's a leave-in spray, so all you have to do is spritz on damp hair and dry as usual.

instagram.com

Promising review: "IT WORKS FOR 4C HAIR!!! Amazing product! My hair was thoroughly moisturized and super soft. It has great detangling properties as well, which is great for my kinky hair. I used it for a FRO OUT and my hair was easily manageable and strengthened. If you have tight coils and kinks, even curls, I would highly recommend." —TheBubsBee

Get it from Sephora or Nordstrom or Revolve for $28.

5. A set of Sephora's favorite styling sprays that'll instantly add texture and give you that wavy, beachy hair. You'll look like you just emerged from the ocean as a sea goddess, even if you're stuck at work (and very far away the beach).

Promising review: "Love this set!! The Verb spray works wonders for my hair. I have shoulder length, semi-thick wavy hair, and it def brings out the curl when I let it air dry with this spray. The IGK spray is great for adding some gritty texture, without being too much, when your hair is 'too clean'. I like my hair a lil tousled looking :). The rest of the sprays are great too! It's a good kit!" —vansailorGet it from Sephora for $32.

6. A curling waver you'll love on breezy spring days because it'll give you those beachy hair waves that honestly look great when they're a lil' wind blown.

instagram.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Listen you guys. I'm a 36-year-old hair degenerate. I can NOT do my hair. I'd watch YouTube videos with 14-year-old girls showing me how 'easy' something was and ultimately get so frustrated and give up. I was hesitant to try but...you guys!!! IT WORKED! My hair is super fine and doesn't hold curl easy. I only had a few minutes and don't have time to 'part my hair in sections' like the 14-year-old YouTube stars suggest. I didn't have any mousse or product to use. And SHOCKINGLY, I was able to use this fast and get some great waves! My baby was pulling at my legs and I literally did this in five minutes. I'm sure if I had more time, and actually used product, it would look even better. I couldn't believe how well the hair stayed crimped. I'm a believer!" —Mrs. Heter

Get it from Amazon or Target for $14.84, or Walmart for $16.46.

7. A UV color protectant spray for keeping your hair shiny and healthy on your upcoming beach trips. It has FIVE restorative oils so your hair will stay frizz-free and hydrated, even after many swim sessions. Plus, it speeds up dry time by 40 percent!

Oh, it's also vegan and cruelty free. 👏Promising review: "This stuff is worth the price, smells nice, and most of all — does what it says! My hair is softer and shinier. I'm a swimmer, so I didn't expect miracles on my straw-like mop-top, but this (I use it along with their 3-in-1 leave-in conditioner) is the closest I've ever come to loving my mane." —MandyDGet it from Amazon for $15.44, or Target or Jet for $19.99.

8. A nourishing mask you can use in the shower that acts like a deep conditioner. It'll improve your hair's softness, shine, and elasticity.

Promising review: "Where have you been my whole life?! I LOVE this mask! I have super fine, thin, aging, static-prone, and color processed hair. Every winter I fight the uphill battle of dried-out hair. This doesn't take away all the static (I don't know a product that does, and I've searched every beauty blog there is) but it does help and drenches your hair in moisture. Winner!" —libbyfrancesGet it from Sephora for $12+ (available in two sizes) or Birchbox for $28 (available in an 8 oz. jar).

9. A miracle-working replenishing treatment that'll totally transform brittle, broken hair into a shiny, healthy mane that you'll want to whip around like the model you are.

instagram.com, Amazon Customer / amazon.com

Promising review: "I had a botched hair color. The hair dresser over bleached and processed my hair. I could hardly brush it because of the damage. I knew I needed to find something to repair my hair. This product has worked wonders. I did an overnight treatment and I could feel that my hair was more manageable. I love this product, I now use it once a week to help replenish my damaged hair. My hair is very thick so I only got two treatments out of one bottle. I will definitely be using this in the future. It smells good and easy to apply." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon or Sephora for $28, or Walmart for $20.48.

10. A foaming conditioner for fine to medium hair textures that'll give you the volume you want on humid days and the moisture you need on dry ones.

Promising review: "This product has been amazing for my hair especially with the drying effects of winter. The product in the can also goes a long way! A tiny dollop covers my hair from root to ends. And it smells great! Will definitely keep purchasing." —Luzgomez92Get it from Target for $5.99 or Walmart for $5.97.

12. A brushable, lightweight hairspray you can use on humid days to ensure your hair stays full and voluminous.

Promising review: "This is the best hairspray I have ever ever used. Keeps my hair so soft and manageable. Despite the humidity here in Florida, since I've started using it, I have not frizzed once. I have fine hair (but lots of it). Most hairsprays make my hair look stiff or provide no hold at all. It holds nice but you can brush through it without losing the shape of the hold. I have had so many compliments on my hair since I started using this. Worth every single penny. My hair is so soft too. I'm hooked! Love it, love it, love it!" —missisueGet it from Amazon for $12.75+ (available in two sizes) or Sephora for $8+ (available in three sizes).

13. Or an extreme-hold hairspray to keep your movie-ready do flawless on the breeziest of date nights.

Promising review: "This is hands down the best hairspray I have ever used. Though it is supposed to be 'unscented', it does have a scent to it. But it is not that overbearing standard hairspray smell. It is a very light clean smelling scent. What I love about this hairspray is that it is 'brushable'. After you style your hair and spray it, you can essentially brush it out to where your hair feels so soft and doesn't feel like you've got hairspray in it. AND it still holds your style. I live in the Panhandle of Florida where it is almost 100% humidity everyday, and this hairspray works wonders in even the most damp of climates. No crunchy feeling even if you choose not to brush your hair out. This product is a must." —kel07Get it from Amazon for $11.49 or Target for $12.59 or Walmart for $12.97.

14. A de-frizzing smoothie cream for thick and curly hair. This cruelty-free (woop!) and all-natural product reduces breakage while hydrating, and ensures your curls are living their ~best~ life.

instagram.com, Roxanne / amazon.com

Promising review: "I have been looking for more natural products to use. I really like this product because it doesn't feel like my hair is weighed down. It's very close to natural hair oils, and it softened my hair. It adds a little shine, but it doesn't look greasy. It definitely defined my curls' shape more and helped with some of the frizz. The smell is more subtle than I expected and I really like that as well. A lot of beauty product smells make me sick to the point I can't wear them — this one I barely even notice and it is pleasant like coconut. If I touch my hair I don't feel the product which is a big plus — no crunchiness or goop. Overall, it's really easy to use and has improved my hair a lot. In addition to this becoming my new leave in moisturizer, I think I'll be trying out some of their other products as well." —J. Blair

Get it from Amazon for $9.57, Target for $9.59, or Walmart for $9.98+.

15. AND! A control jelly that'll enhance and define your curls ALL. DAY. LONG. It helps with frizziness and makes your hair look shiny and healthy.

Promising review: "The best product I have EVER used on my fine, curly hair! It defines all the curls without weighing them down and smells AMAZING. It also lasts for a few days, which is always a plus for curly hair." —MonicaGet it from Amazon or Target for $15.69, or Walmart for $15.51 or Jet for $17.94.

16. A silk pillowcase because your bed shouldn't cause you annoying tangles and mess up your 'do — the outside wind regularly takes care of that, thank you very much. This pillowcase can reduce hair knots and also just give you the best sleep of your life.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this! I have really curly hair and this keeps my ringlets looking good for days. With a normal cotton pillowcase it usually separates my curls so I had to wash it everyday. I'm impressed that is hasn't frizzed very much at all." —Curly Hair

Get it from Amazon for $22.90+ (available in six sizes and 27 colors).

17. A best-selling deep conditioner perfect for damaged and over-processed hair. All you have to do is lather on the mask in the shower for 5-10 minutes, and let your thirsty head soak up all that hydrating argan oil.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair 2-3 times a week but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves my hair feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair. My mom orders this product on Amazon regularly and I'm glad I finally gave in and ordered it. Would definitely recommend and will repurchase when I run out in a few months." —Maegan W.

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

18. A popular detangling brush to rid your mane of nasty tangles (spring = too much wind) without causing tons of breakage. It works on all hair types and can be used whether it's wet or already dry.

instagram.com, sephora.com

Promising review: "This brush is incredible. After using my sister's Tangle Teezer hair brush, I immediately bought my own. I am extremely tough on my hair (constant color changes, hair ties, shampooing every day) and this brush can handle that. When I brush my hair wet or dry, I am not losing hair to my brush." —Katie Vickers

Get it from Amazon (available in five colors) or Target for $11.99+, or Sephora for $15 (available in four colors).

19. A heat protectant crème packed with rosehip, argan, and coconut oils so your locks stay healthy and hydrated after curling or blowdrying.

It protects against heat damage up to 425 degrees!Promising review: "I have been using this product for over a week now I am obsessed! It smells amazing, it doesn't make my hair oily, and makes my hair so much more manageable before styling it! I also use it as an anti-frizz cream even when I don't blow dry or use a curling iron. It works wonders! I have my hair colored and I am generally picky about the products I put it my hair. Brigeo has made my hair look and feel healthier! Highly recommend <3" —aikocunananGet it from Amazon for $19.43, or Sephora or Dermstore for $24.

20. A teasing brush because rainy, damp days can't keep your hair down. The tapered handle makes sectioning super easy and the soft bristles add instant volume.

sephora.com

Promising review: "Drybar is a great system! Like all of their products, if you follow the video instructions precisely, your hair will have that salon look. I have medium, long fine blonde hair and I am so glad I discovered Drybar. This brush makes it easy to add a bit of pouf to your hair without tangling it." —hawthorne

Get it from Sephora for $18.

21. A miracle anti-static spray you'll swoon over because it leaves your hair silky smooth and without all the unwanted static or frizz.

Honestly, I&#x27;d buy this just for the packaging. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Promising review: &quot;At this point I&#x27;m convinced that IGK can&#x27;t make a product I won&#x27;t love. I have thick, naturally straight hair but lately no matter what I do, I get terrible flyways and my hair gets frizzy and poofy by the end of the day. I also am guilty of heat-styling very regularly which doesn&#x27;t help. When I say that this product changes all of that, I&#x27;m not exaggerating. My hair stays smooth and shiny ALL day — over 10 hours. I think it even added some much needed texture and grip on the ends to help my waves stay intact throughout a long day. I have tried so many products to control the frizz and I am always disappointed. Not this time, Laid-Back delivers!!!!&quot; —CmattGet it from Amazon for $21 or Sephora for $29.

22. And a finishing crème that smooths dry ends and gives fine to medium hair a textured look. Just use after styling to add a slight reflective shine!

theouai.com, sephora.com

Promising review: "Now you know when a hairstylist purchases a HAIR product for FULL PRICE, it's a big deal (since we get everything at cost). This product is amazinggg! I'm a hairstylist so I have A LOT of product knowledge, and this finishing creme is something I could never live without! I use this product everyday. I use it after I blowout my hair, and put it through the ends, then kind of scrunch it and it gives me that model off duty look and so much shine. I also don't shampoo my hair everyday so I use a lot of dry shampoo and this product adds the shine and smoothness back, and I can go another day without blowing it out. I can't live without it! Love, love, love!' —sharon430

Get it from Sephora or Nordstrom or Urban Outfitters for $24.

No matter what weather this spring brings, you're gonna look FIERCE.
